Configuring the global navigation bar

This article covers how to configure the global navigation bar.

The global navigation bar is the header navigation bar located at the top of every Skedulo page. It is the primary tool used to navigate across the Skedulo web application. Add links to any pages you want easy access to so that you can quickly open them.

In this example, we want to add links to the Create and List view pages, which will make it easier to view the changes made to the templates.

  1. Navigate to the Settings > Global navigation bar page.

  2. Click Add menu item to display the Add menu item modal.

  3. We will add a link to the -create page first, so, in the Menu item name field, enter the name you want to give the menu item. For example, Create arcade machine. This is what will appear on the Global navigation bar.

  4. Select Platform page.

  5. From the dropdown list, select the name of your create page. For example, arcade-games-create.

  7. Click Add menu item again to add a second menu item, this time pointed to the arcade-games-list page and called Arcade Machine List.

    Now that you have two new menu items, it can be useful to group them under a parent item so that the Global navigation bar doesn’t become too cluttered.

  8. Click Add menu item a third time.

  9. On the Add menu item modal:

    • Enter a name, for example, Arcade Games.
    • Under Type, select No link.
  10. Click Save to save your changes and close the modal.

  11. On the Global navigation bar page, use the gripper icons to drag the List and Create menu items beneath the parent item.
